A new ISO standard has recently been published and is now available from NFPA.

ISO 2942:2004, Hydraulic fluid power - Filter elements - Verification of fabrication integrity and determination of the first bubble point (fourth edition)

This International Standard specifies a bubble-point test method applicable to filter elements used in hydraulic fluid power systems. It can be used either to verify the fabrication integrity of a filter element by checking the absence of bubbles or to permit the localization of the largest pore of the filtering medium by determining the first bubble point.
